Let’s be honest, raising kids is hard. At any given stage of parenting, we find ourselves frustrated at not being confident about what we should be doing. We wonder if we are too hard or too soft on our toddler. We’re not sure we are teaching our grade schoolers everything they need to succeed, and we feel like we’re losing control of our high schooler. We ask ourselves questions like, “Am I good enough?” “Am I doing the right things?” “Do my kids love me?”

We all intend to raise good kids who turn out right, but it isn’t good intentions that will get us our desires. It is direction, the ability to take steps in the direction that will give us confidence that we are raising kids who will turn out right.

Author Randy Pardue and his wife Tammy, struggled with these thoughts as well, until he applied the same principles he learned in building his own home, and in building a student ministry. He created a blueprint. It worked for them and it will work for you.
